@WeddingBecks:  Haven’t worn mine yet, but I have two beautiful dresses 🙂  The first one is for the ceremony and the second one for the reception (changing after our first dance and cutting of the cake).

I’m a Chinese bride, so mine were totally different… I wore the white dress for the ceremony and part of the reception (cocktail hour, first dance, dinner, the Hora). We danced the Hora immediately after dinner, and I changed right after that and wore the red dress for the rest of the reception (cake cutting, dance with dad). I changed my earrings and shoes.

I had two ceremonies actually (a catholic one on thursday and winery one on Friday), so after dinner at the Friday one I changed into the dress I wore at the church to serve as a reception dress. I was SOOO glad I did, too, because it was so much lighter and more comfortable!









And church dress as reception dress!
